Dailleurs, la Révélation highlights a decisive distinction between the concept of aletheia, which is neutral and does not involve the will, and that of apokalypsis, the logic of which attests to the primacy of the wil which chooses because it loves and, in doing so, discovers the lover in the subject. Playing Christian truth against Greek truth, this distinction allows to think afresh about the truth of the Grecks, to the point of recognising exemplary cases of overflowing in which aletheia shows more than we would expect of it, and where the effects of apokalypsis are verified in aletheia itselt. Reversing the current pattern, the hermeneutics from which this distinction stems requires an understanding of the origin of metaphysics from Christianity, and not the reverse; this is the task that will be pursued by proposing a reading of Plato's Alcibiades I, where Eros constitutes the genesis of aletheia. This will lead to a twofold verification: first, the philosophical content of relationship posed by Jean-Luc Marion between uncovering and revelation; second, the hermeneutical fruitfulness of this relationship, which will be shown to retain its relevance in a theoretical field other than that for which it was conceived.

Abstract

Dailleurs, la Révélation highlights a decisive distinction between the concept of aletheia, which is neutral and does not involve the will, and that of apokalypsis, the logic of which attests to the primacy of the wil which chooses because it loves and, in doing so, discovers the lover in the subject. Playing Christian truth against Greek truth, this distinction allows to think afresh about the truth of the Grecks, to the point of recognising exemplary cases of overflowing in which aletheia shows more than we would expect of it, and where the effects of apokalypsis are verified in aletheia itselt. Reversing the current pattern, the hermeneutics from which this distinction stems requires an understanding of the origin of metaphysics from Christianity, and not the reverse; this is the task that will be pursued by proposing a reading of Plato's Alcibiades I, where Eros constitutes the genesis of aletheia. This will lead to a twofold verification: first, the philosophical content of relationship posed by Jean-Luc Marion between uncovering and revelation; second, the hermeneutical fruitfulness of this relationship, which will be shown to retain its relevance in a theoretical field other than that for which it was conceived.
